This blog wasn’t really a spur of the moment decision, but more of something that had been building for awhile. My
name is Alex Kelly, and I have been a movie lover for as long as I can remember.
I started out getting all my film news from Movies.com (which looks like stopped operating this past June) and jumped out around to different sites after that. I was always fascinated by the rumors and trailers and posters and buzz about upcoming movies, and always wanted to jump into that world.
Like most people throughout the world, I have been affected by the current COVID-19 Pandemic. I was furloughed by my job on March 25th, 2019, and was suddenly left with some time on my hands. Therefore, I decided to start Furloughed Film Talks.
While all the movie theaters are closed, there are movies I haven’t watched that I own that I will be watching and reviewing until theaters are open again. Along with the normal 5 star rating, I will be doing a Quarantine Day rating. The better the movie is, the lower the Quarantine Day rating will be. For example, La La Land is an excellent movie, so I would suggest it be a Quarantine Day 1 watch.
This site isn’t just for me, but for other people who have time on their hands. If you have a movie you just watched and you want to review it, send it to and I’ll post it under your name. We’re all in this together, and I look forward to discussing movies with you!
